自分メモ用

*One of the first great novels of the turn of the century

*It symbolizes capitalism

*It introduced a new kind of narrator

“It excited him too that many men had already loved Daisy- it increased her value in his eyes.”

“One thing's sure and nothing's surer; The rich get richer and the poor get – children.”

"Her voice is full of money."

the moving speech of one of his councillors is given by the Venerable Bede

in his Ecclesiastical History  

The sparrow is Bede

'..the SWIFT flight of a LONE SPARROW through the banqueting hall where YOU sit in the winter months to DINE with your THANES & COUNSELOR'

SWIFT= represents how the old traditional views on religion are SLOW to accept change.

LONE SPARROW= represents the minority of christianity vs. the large and powerful catholic church.

YOU= the Catholic leaders who are apprehensive to change because they love POWER, NOT the people.

DINE= to live in luxury like a celebrity  (this means the catholic leaders are not humble like they pretend to be)

THANES & COUNSELOR = the entire network of people associated with the Catholic Church are vain and selfish, and do not care about the well being of humanity.

The sparrow also means: birds = the human Soul... A Flight of the winged soul back to God.

.....therefore, it is inevitable that the Catholic Church's deceptive behavior will come to an end, and that the rise of Christianity is a natural antithesis (evolution) of humanity.
